As co-founder and head of legendary PR firm Savage & Best, Jane Savidge is one of the main instigators of the Britpop movement that swept the UK in the mid-1990s. Her new book, “Pulp's This Is Hardcore”, offers a unique insight into the cultural and historical context of the record that destroyed Britpop, This Is Hardcore was Pulp's cry for help. A giant, flawed masterpiece of a record that tackled fame, ageing, mortality, drugs, and porn – and still came out crying and laughing on the other side.

Jane Savidge discusses her book on Pulp and how fame can let you down, with esteemed Swedish journalist and TV presenter, Per Sinding-Larsen.
